Police say a man was fatally wounded while allegedly trying to rob an apartment resident in Hermitage Monday night.

The shooting happened at Stewarts Ferry Apartments on Grove Creek Avenue.

Police say they found they found 20-year-old Kendrick M. Edwards dead in a breezeway.

Joshua Jones, 18, says he opened his apartment door to take out the trash when he was confronted by two men who tried to rob him at gunpoint.

Police say Jones was able to get control of one of the men's guns and then shot Edwards.

Jones went back to his apartment, which is when police say the other suspect fled the scene. Police are working to identify the man who was with Edwards.

No charges have been filed against Jones.
